end of the swivel neck of the nozzle until the locking button of the wand snaps

®
Power Nozzle requires no rug surface height adjustment. The shape of
the Power Nozzle body has been specially designed to allow it to be effective on any rug
or bare floor surface.
Use long, slow strokes when cleaning. For thicker rugs, use a criss-cross pattern to raise
nap and give them a fluffier appearance.
To clean stairs:
Remove caster set from power unit.
Set Majestic
®
on landing.
Remove wand and connect hose handle directly to Power Nozzle.

®
Power Nozzle. Should any
issue arise that requires service, please contact your local FILTERQUEEN
®

maintain maximum cleaning performance. Contact your local FILTERQUEEN
®

and wipe with a clean cloth the male connections located on both the wand and Power
Nozzle, and the female connections located on both the wand and hose handle.

A. The Dusting Brush:
For Easy Dusting
Assemble Majestic
®
for suction cleaning.
Do all your general dusting with the round brush – it virtually eliminates your need for
a dust cloth. Use on highly-polished furniture, the most delicate cloth lampshades, or
any surface where dust accumulates.
For general room dusting: Attach brush directly to hose. Clean with gentle short
strokes; do not press down hard as this will seal the opening and cut off your cleaning
power.
To clean brush: Run open end of hose over bristles of brush. If you have been dusting
grimy or very sooty surfaces, remove bristle assembly from rubber socket, wash in warm
soapy water; let dry before replacing.
B. Crevice Tool:
For Hard to Reach Places
Assemble Majestic
®
for suction cleaning.
Use crevice tool for removing dust and dirt behind cushions in upholstered furniture,
mattress tufts and bindings, bed springs, corners of drawers, radiators, and any other
place that’s hard to reach.
NOTE: When cleaning radiators, use crevice tool for suction first, but if coils are too close togeth-
er to reach the dirt, hang damp cloth or newspaper behind radiator, assemble Majestic
®
for blow-
ing and blow dust out onto cloth or paper.
Assembled for blowing, Majestic
®
unit and crevice tool may be used to defrost your
refrigerator, aerate rugs, or inflate party balloons.

A. Bare Floor Brush:
For hard floors and walls
Assemble Majestic
®
for suction cleaning.
Ideal for hard-surfaced floors such as tile, linoleum, wood, and concrete floors. The
bare floor brush cleans a wide area with one simple stroke. It is also effective in clean-
ing walls, screens, ceilings, shades, or any flat surface.
NOTE: When cleaning wall surfaces, always work in a straight line from the bottom up.
To clean hard surfaces: Attach brush to end of wand and use in same manner as the
Power Nozzle.
To clean brush: After each use, remove lint, threads, etc., by rubbing open end of hose
over brush. If brush is soiled, rinse in mild soap solution and let dry before using on light-
colored areas.
B. Upholstery Nozzle and Brush:
For upholstery and drapes
Assemble Majestic
®
for suction cleaning.
To clean overstuffed furniture and mattresses: Use the nozzle without the brush to
remove deeply embedded dirt; use the nozzle with brush when fabric is covered with
threads, lint, etc.
To clean curtains and drapes: Attach wand to hose. For heavy drapes, attach nozzle only
directly to wand. For delicate curtains, use the nozzle and brush. Brush will prevent deli-
cate materials from being drawn into the nozzle.
